    Great! ...and also rather interesting... :)
    At this point my working theory would be that repeatedly tuning non-receivable channels is part of the problem... but on the other hand, I don't see how that in itself would be a problem for the drivers. More to the point, I think it is likely that while you had those channels, TV Server was continually using the tuners either for recording/timeshifting or EPG grabbing. Now with those defunct channels removed TV Server can actually get to an idle state. So maybe what you were doing was effectively stress testing the tuners and the problems will eventually show again. I feel maybe we should inform TBS either way... but I'm not sure what to say to them as we have no evidence of where the fault is or even what the problem is...

    Yeah I don't want to jinx it but if this really has solved the issues I was thinking about how I might be able to re-produce the problem.

    Is this patch on the new pre release version? Do you think it will be possible to get the download on here?

    Thanks

    Hello Andrew

    The patch was included in MP 1.5 PR. I have not seen any further deadlock reports since that time.

    AFAIK we did not release a patch for MP 1.3, so you need to upgrade to MP 1.5 PR or newer if you want this fix.
